Welcome to Volunteer Central, your hub for all things volunteering.
Reporting Time and Miles
We ask our volunteers to report their volunteer hours and miles driven to our local Meals on Wheels office. You can enter your hours and miles by logging in to Assisted Rides or complete a timesheet and submit it to our office. Download the timesheet here and record your hours and mileage after each delivery route you complete. Timesheets should be submitted monthly by email to volunteercoordinator@MealsonWheelsNEI.org. or by mail:
Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois
1123 Emerson, Suite 213
Evanston, IL 60201
Mileage for your volunteer work can be deducted on your tax return. Mileage reports may be requested at the beginning of each year for tax purposes. Email volunteercoordinator@MealsonWheelsNEI.org to request your report.
Our volunteers can log in to Assisted Rides to check schedules, record hours and miles and sign up for open routes. Log in to assistedrides.com with your username and password. Need help logging in? Contact our office at volunteercoordinator@MealsonWheelsNEI.org or call 847-332-2678.
Policies and Procedures
All new and current volunteers should stay familiar with the Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois Volunteer Policies and Procedures. Review the Volunteer Policy and Procedures and return the signed acknowledgment on the last page.
We require background checks on all our staff and volunteers. These background checks are renewed annually. If you have been notified that it is time to renew your background check, you may do so by visiting verifiedvolunteers.com or completing the Background Check Renewal Form here and returning it to our office. (A signature is required.)
All current volunteers need a Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois Volunteer ID to wear while delivering meals. If you do not have one, stop in the office to have your photo taken or send in a photo to volunteercoordinator@MealsonWheelsNEI.org. We’ll let you know when your ID is ready to pick up.
